McLaren MP4-22 - radiator layout 26 August 2007

In contrast to its Ferrari rival, which sports multiple cooling gills, the McLaren features totally enclosed sidepods, despite the high Turkish temperatures. The MP4-22's radiator layout, however, does not differ greatly from that of the F2007. The radiator pack sports a single incline of around 68 degrees, allowing for tight packaging within the sidepod, whilst also providing highly efficient cooling. The solution appeared to work well at Istanbul Park, even if the McLarens weren't quite as quick as the Ferraris.
